Ferrari driver struck by truck in South Africa

A man in his 40ís sustained critical and another moderate injuries when a passing truck on the R21 struck both of them near the Voortrekker Road off ramp this morning.

Although the information could not be confirmed, bystanders explained to paramedics that the driver of a Ferrari signaled another driver in a bakkie to pull over. Both vehicles came to a standstill in the slow lane of the highway. Another bystander explained that as both drivers suddenly exited their vehicle a truck passed and collided with the driver of the Ferrari and the driver of the bakkie.

When paramedics arrived on the scene they found the driver of the Ferrari in a critical condition with multiple injuries. He was rushed per ambulance to a nearby hospital for further medical attention. He later died in hospital. The driver of the bakkie was treated on the scene for moderate injuries and later transported to hospital in a stable condition.

The exact circumstances surrounding this incident will be investigated. The truck and its driver could not be located on the scene when paramedics arrived.

Jess- Tragic. We lose multiple police officers to the same thing every year.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
